Note: If you do not already know who I am, then you are advised to turn back now, lest ye die of boredom. This is not the blog of someone who is trying to become a famous blogger. This is meant as a memory bank for our future and as a way for our out-of-town families to keep up with the goings-on around here. I am increasingly bothered by the permanence of the internet, particularly in regard to children who have no choice in the matter. As a result, I intend to keep things pretty matter-of-fact.
Stephen’s birthday was on a weekday, and his school was having some sort of field day which he attended with his mother. There was face painting and a bouncy castle and lots of cool stuff like that. Then he came home and had cupcakes and opened a bunch of presents. Much of my family had arrived by this time (his party was not until a few days later) and we had pretty relaxing birthday festivities. Stephen got a wallet, a nerf gun, some imaginext stuff, a waterproof digital camera, a miniature accordion, and tons of other stuff. Too much, of course.
